Tri-State and Xcel Energy Opposition

Published by at 7:01 am under General Information

More than 200 people crowded the P.U.C. Public Hearing expressing opposition and “substantive evidence” against the proposed power transmission lines and their routes through the County.  La Veta Town Board presented a letter of opposition to the County.  The County has expressed support for the northern ARCO route as having the least impact.   And Rural Utilities Service has now requested an Environmental Impact Statement.  Tri-State has tentatively agreed to remove the Middle Creek southern route from consideration.  See the project website maps at
